I love this book because it has a great format for learning Chinese. On the back of each page of simplified Chinese text is the same text in pinyin (how it is pronounced). At the end of the book is a dictionary with all the words sorted by the Pinyin (so they are easy to look up). The paragraph structure on each page is also really helpful when trying to associate the Chinese characters with their pinyin. The story is well written and kind of fun. I like the "on the back format" over the "pinyin on the side format" because I am not tempted to cheat and look up the pinyin when I don't have to.
For me, this book has been and awesome experience and is just what I wanted! I am hoping to find other books that use this format, as it is very helpful.
cons: not very well editted. still a few of traditional characters and typos in the book.
